Northern Lights Introduces EPA Tier 3 Compliant Genset
By Capt. Ken Kreisler
I am constantly on the lookout for companies and products that understand how important it is that our boating community has the proper equipment in terms of helping and protecting the very environment we hold so dear. With that said, Northern Lights introduces the new M944T3 EPA Tier 3 generator (40kW @ 1800 RPM).
The new genset brings full US EPA Tier 3 compliance at 1,400 fewer pounds and over 50% less overall volume than a similarly equipped model of the previous generation. Ideal for any application requiring 40 kilowatts of clean, customized power, the power density of the M944T3 will be especially attractive to vessels needing heavy-duty power in a compact package.
If you haven’t been up on all the regulations that have been passed and will be coming up in the near future, I found a few paragraphs on the topic at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/marine.htm and will be doing a more comprehensive study in a forthcoming GREEN DOCK posting on this site.
With Steve’s remarkable graphics adorning the exterior of the Northern Light sound box, your high-tech engine room just got a bit more special.
As you can see, the sound enclosure on the M944T3 features a specially commissioned graphic from internationally renowned marine artist Steve Goione. Steve is an industry friend of mine, a very talented artist, and one who realizes how important it is to care about the environment.
Steve is not only a talented artist but cares deeply about everything that goes on in, on, around, and under the water. To see more of his work, visit http://www.stevegoione.com
“The M944T3 represents the state of the art in power generation,” said Northern Lights Vice President of Sales and Marketing Colin Puckett. “Our engineering team has created a truly remarkable machine and we are thrilled to partner with Steve Goione to show how we can add both aesthetic and technical flair to a vessel,” he added.
Like all Northern Lights products, the M944T3 is based on world-class components – including industrial engine blocks and generators with auxiliary windings for clean power production. The turbo charged engine achieves high torque and smooth operation with direct fuel injection. This technology optimizes engine efficiency, resulting in low exhaust emissions and superior fuel economy. This new model can be completely customized with numerous options and accessories to perfectly power any suitable application.
